MGN

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- There are seven newly reported COVID-19 related deaths in Oregon, raising the state’s death toll to 2,817, the Oregon Health Authority reported Friday while noting that several were from months ago -- even last year, due to processing delays.

OHA also reported 369 new confirmed and presumptive cases of COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. Friday, bringing the state total to 211,998.

Vaccinations in Oregon

OHA reported Friday that 5,295 new doses of COVID-19 vaccinations were added to the state immunization registry. Of this total, 2,896 doses were administered on Thursday 15 and 2,399 were administered on previous days but were entered into the vaccine registry on Thursday.

The seven-day running average is now 5,300 doses per day.

Oregon has now administered 2,607,790 first and second doses of Pfizer, 1,765,059 first and second doses of Moderna and 175,839 single doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.

As of Friday, 2,445,717 people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and 2,271,516 people have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series.

Cumulative daily totals can take several days to finalize because providers have 72 hours to report doses administered and technical challenges have caused many providers to lag in their reporting. OHA has been providing technical support to vaccination sites to improve the timeliness of their data entry into the state’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS).

To date, 2,975,895 doses of Pfizer, 2,267,560 doses of Moderna and 299,100 doses of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines have been delivered to sites across Oregon.

These data are preliminary and subject to change.

Updated vaccination data are provided on Oregon’s COVID-19 data dashboards and have been updated Friday.

COVID-19 hospitalizations

The number of hospitalized patients with COVID-19 across Oregon is 141, which is four more than Thursday. There are 44 COVID-19 patients in intensive care unit (ICU) beds, which is six more than Thursrday.

The total number of patients in hospital beds may fluctuate between report times. The numbers do not reflect admissions per day, nor the length of hospital stay. Staffing limitations are not captured in this data and may further limit bed capacity.

St. Charles Bend reported 12 COVID-19 patients early Friday, three of whom were in the ICU, with one on a ventilator.

Cases and deaths

The new confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases reported Friday are in the following counties: Benton (9), Clackamas (27), Clatsop (2), Columbia (7), Coos (4), Crook (6), Deschutes (19), Douglas (14), Hood River (1), Jackson (28), Josephine (12), Klamath (6), Lake (1), Lane (28), Lincoln (8), Linn (18), Malheur (3), Marion (28), Morrow (2), Multnomah (55), Polk (15), Tillamook (1), Umatilla (28), Union (3), Wasco (3), Washington (33) and Yamhill (8).   

Note: Five of Friday’s newly reported COVID-19 related deaths are from late 2020 and early 2021. The counting of deaths from death certificates may take time to process because they are determined by physicians and then sent to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for further review before the cause of death is ultimately determined. Once this information is confirmed, the information is reported back with a final cause of death to states. This lagging indicator is now being captured in Friday’s reporting.
